I would first try updating drivers here: yourhttp://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriversHome/ShowProductSelector. Make sure to only use genuine Dell & Microsoft drivers. If that doesn't help, it may just be that the key's contacts are wearing as it is an older model. I would try plugging in a USB keyboard, and if it works better, then your keyboard is just wearing out. You should be able to find a replacement here: http://www.redplanettrading.com/. They specialize in Dell parts, or on Amazon or eBay. It should only be held in with a couple little screws, easy job.t

Hi my keyboard is locked, cannot type in anything


have you tried hitting the "numlock" key? Sometimes it is accidentally hit and that will cause your keyboard to fail to respond to average typing.
In addition there might be a key lock button on your laptop.

Toshiba Laptop Keyboard Not Working


pls dont use your notebook yet, since there are still moisture in it. try to use a hair blower but place the hair blower at least 2 feet away. you dont want to melt the plastic in your notebook. blower it for 20minutes then try to turn on your computer. if it still does not work. I suggest to bring it to the service center of your notebook.

Have you removed all power (AC adaptor and battery) for several minutes. Sometimes it may also help to hold the power button in for 10 seconds while all power is disconnected. Then plug back in and start computer.
